good day to All!!!

Few days ago I attended the Mass. The reading was about Jesus saying to the disciples that it was easier for ‘the camel to enter the eye of the needle than a richman to enter…..’

The priest explained that Jesus was aware of the environments at the time. Apparently, Jerusalem was built at the time in accordance to ‘protection and safety issues’.

To avoid or prevent casualties, in case the enemies were to attack the people of Jerusalema, all the doors were to closed, except one entrance. The door of this ‘only one’ entrance was shaped like a needle eye. If the carmel was to go through this door, it would be okay, but if the rich person went through the same door, he would carried a lot of stuff, therefore could not go through because of the “stuff/baggages’ that he would carried with him.
